Question about Logitech Quickcam Chat Webcam

1 Answer

Friend can not hear us via Skype

On calling, we can hear & see them. They see us, but no sound from us. The Skype message says it can not hear us, nor does the Test call. All was working until latest Skype update actioned.
Does the (or any) update change the settings, I suspect not, but since then lost Mic. On checking Mic, all is reported as working. I have now discovered that the E2500 webcam, says that the Mic is Muted. As I can not find out how the Mic can be switched, I arrive back at my update question, HELP. Many thanks

    The fix may work for some, but I now know it is a bigger long term with the compatibility of Skype and Vista; it has been noted as going on for over one year.

    The early editions of Skype generally worked, the latest 3.8 edition does not. You can lose either video and/or sound, I understand it can be a mix at either end.

    Yesterday I downloaded the Beta 4.0 version, it has resolved the problems. I trust this is of help.

If the mic is really been muted, do the following:
Start -> Control Panel -> Sounds and Audio Devices -> Voice [tab] -> In Voice Recording area press "Volume..." button -> check if "mute all" is unchecked and adjust the slider to proper position

I call my friend and i cannot hear her while she is talking.

There are two obvious reasons (and a number of not-so obvious ones) for this.
1. Have you got your sound on (and adjusted properly) ? You might have your sound turned down or off on your PC or just within Skype. To test if your sound is working, try making a test call using the Skype test call facility.
2. Your friend's microphone may not be working, they may not have one or its sensitivity in Skype may be turned down or it may be 'muted'. Ask to check that her microphone is not muted. Ask her to make a test call on Skype and adjust her microphone sensitivity so that she can hear herself sensibly.

On my version of Skype the test call has appeared in 'contacts' but now it is accessible from the menu at the top left of the window from the call > audio settings menu/page. You can change your volume, microphone and speaker sensitivity settings on that page. You may have a different version of Skype of course.

Skype microphone does not work

You need to check your audio (sometimes called Sound on some systems) settings (under control panel on Windows or Settings on Mac).

Under input (or sometimes called sound recording), make sure the headset you are using is selected.

You might also try using the headset with another program to see if it will record your voice. (Audacity is free You can download it and try recording on it.)

If it still doesn't work, here is a page on Skype that has a Microsoft tool you can try -
